GM Dictionary: Castle Anatomy #5
This month I want to cover something that comes up often in fantasy campaigns: castles. What exactly are the different parts that we mention in descriptions and what are their purpose? Hopefully this month will help clear up some of those details.
This is a type of opening in crenelations, merlons, or walls that splay outwardly. This provides an increased view and angle of attack for the defender without increasing the likelihood an attacker may hit you.
This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
